Title: Solar cell efficiency tables (version 48): Solar cell efficiency tables (version 48)

Abstract

Consolidated tables showing an extensive listing of the highest independently confirmed efficiencies for solar cells and modules are presented. Guidelines for inclusion of results into these tables are outlined, and new entries since January 2016 are reviewed.
